This piece is stunning. Antique Japanese Cloisonne on copper. Spherical lidded “Koro” jar with cover. Unusually large at 10.5″ tall, 9.75″ wide (a sphere on 3 feet as shown). Beautiful decoration of birds and flowering branches, extending onto the lid as shown. Base is also ornately decorated with intricate patterns and a turquoise ground surrounding center design with butterflies and 3 copper feet. Interior and under the lid with a thick turquoise enamel. This is purely utilitarian and rather sloppy, designed simply to protect the copper and not to be seen. This is one of the best pieces we have had in 50 years of collecting cloisonne.
